DeSales University and Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Seek Patients for Free Physical Therapy

by Tom McNamara | Jun 09, 2015

Once a week from June 18 until August 7, 2015, DeSales University doctor of physical therapy (PT) students will treat volunteer clients at four area Good Shepherd Rehabilitation sites free of charge.

Physical_TherapyPhysical therapy services will be provided by students under the supervision of the PT faculty from the program and are for individuals experiencing pain and loss of motion, as a result of osteoarthritis, low back or neck pain, spinal stenosis, or other musculoskeletal conditions.

“Sometimes people reach the limit of their therapy per their insurance company but they still have a way to go to be back to full function,” says Dr. Kay Malek, director of the DeSales physical therapy program. “Or people may not have insurance for PT.” 

Good Shepherd sites offering the physical therapy include locations in Allentown, Center Valley, and Souderton, Pa., on Thursday afternoons and Macungie, Pa., on Friday afternoons.
